Since 2016, Smart has been ramping up the deployment of Smart WiFi in high foot-traffic areas across the nation, and is also available in airports, universities and malls.

“Let us work together in dealing with this health crisis by keeping ourselves informed on how to best safeguard our health and that of our families and communities during the community quarantine, as well as helping share the correct information about what is happening,” said PLDT-Smart Public Affairs Head Ramon R. Isberto.
